GRAPHISOFT recently announced the release of the next upgrade to its BIM design software; ArchiCAD 16. This version of ArchiCAD provides solutions that respond to some of the most dynamically developing segments of the BIM industry. They are building components, freedom of design and energy efficiency.
The value of BIM software can be measured only by how well it is used, within a given workflow and how well a team accurately generates and shares data across project teams; ultimately managing that data throughout the building lifecycle.
On June 19th, in a live webinar, GRAPHISOFT will cover the basics of ArchiCAD and give attendees a foundation to make the most of the new tools found in ArchiCAD 16.
More after the break.
Using the Vennesla Library & Cultural Center in Norway, designed by Helen & Hard Architects as a basis for learning, the webinar will cover two of the major new features in ArchiCAD 16 – BIM Components and the MORPH tool.
• BIM Components: You will learn how to create, share & find custom BIM components and make the best use of ArchiCAD’s new modeling capabilities. Discover how to source objects from the cloud-based BIM component database, BIMcomponents.com. Users can create, search, upload and download custom 3D and 2D BIM components and easily bring them into the ArchiCAD library.
• MORPH™: Work out your design muscles before registering for this webinar, because they’ll be stretched far, thanks to the MORPH™ tool found in ArchiCAD 16. MORPH™ is the easiest way to create any freeform elements desired. Without geometric limitations, any edge or surface created with the MORPH™ tool can be moved and shaped in any direction. Extraordinary modeling flexibility with an intuitive graphical properties and popular modeling techniques such as push & pull makes MORPH™ extremely useful. Direct modeling capabilities within the native BIM environment with the new tool. MORPH enables intuitive, graphical element creation with any custom geometry, featuring popular modeling techniques like Push & Pull.
For a live demonstration of ArchiCAD 16, please register for the upcoming “BIM Components at Your Fingertips” webinar on June 19, 2012.
